Homeless families: rebuilding connections.

Author information

  • 1Boston College School of Nursing, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.


Young families are the fastest-growing group of homeless people in the United States. Many women have suffered violations of physical and sexual abuse, reduced income through divorce, and discrimination in seeking housing. Families have been disconnected from their homes, an adequate income, health care services, schools, and their families. Selected literature is reviewed to promote understanding and advocacy nursing for this high-risk population.
